Noto Sans has also (prerelease) support for many non-latin scripts
You don't need a different font, what you need is to use lining or tabular figures, which are numbers designed to line up with each other when displaying data. Apparently Gotham has tabular figures, you just need to activate them through openType.
Check out Source Code Pro at Google Fonts. It's a broad family with an accompanying non-monospace font: Source Sans Pro. The two make up a very well-designed system from veteran type designer Paul Hunt.
It's tough to come up with a useful average. For one, there are multiple versions of Adobe Garamond out there. You have to factor in four main variables: Character width Letter spacing Word spacing Glyph frequency (relative to your normal content) The first three get really fuzzy if justification is involved. For general purposes, some people rely on the ...
I'm assuming you're looking for free fonts. You can try these: Vampiro 1: Lobster: Or browse around Font Squirrel for free script, calligraphic, and handwritten type.
You can join creativemarket.com. They've always got new goodies to share, and the pricing will really stretch your gold coins. I'm just like you as far as being a habitual "borrower" of fonts. At one point, I borrowed the entire Adobe library (2000+) from the newspaper :-\ Ironically, there were so many fonts, and so many looked similar to one another ...
If you haven't already... sign up for the MyFonts.com e-newsletter. While not always in a bundle, there are quite often huge discounts on the fonts showcased in their e-newsletter. I'm talking $200-$500 fonts for under $80. Massive deals. The showcased fonts are often new designs. In fact, an excellent example if you like the font: ...
i wouldn't worry about it. iphone and other high pixel density screens have been doing a fine job at keeping resolutions scaled correctly. as far as designing goes, i'd only be concerned with exporting the artwork at the desired ppi. if you want "retina-ready" here is a blog post that hits the gist of it, and several links to tuts and other resources. ...
You can always design in absolute pixels since your monitor and your devices will never have the same pixel density. For example, you could design everything in xhdpi and therefore maintain the same size throughout. Googles holo templates for example work that way too (but in mdpi). The only difference that you'll experience is that your desktop won't show ...
Linotype made it to CSS over Panose system partly because of licensing concerns. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PANOSE. The Panose number is used in TrueType, OpenType and SVG fonts and contains infromation about weight, proportion, contrast etc. The Panose weight number is more or less the same system as the Linotype/CSS. From very light to extra black. ...
The CSS font-weight is influenced by Linotype numbering system. As you can learn from the wiki, every digit in the number describes different characteristic of the typeface and from this point CSS adopted Lynotype in part... The 100 to 900 system works for some fonts, but fails for other, thus you should always check this in advance before using particular ...
i don't know what the font is, it's pretty generic, i looks like you could find it in Dafonts handwriting section http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=603 here's a tool i've used before with good results in identifying typefaces, http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/
Lots of great suggestions here, I would add Thinking with Type by Ellen Lupton (which also comes with well-documented companion website. It is different from Bringhurst or Tschichold as it contains much more about expression but still contains lots of information about the smaller details in type.
It's an issue, but there's nothing automated you can do. I've filed several bug reports for InDesign and Illustrator about using spaces for centering, underlines, etc. and in years Adobe hasn't corrected the issue. The only thing you can do is delete the trailing space on that line or manually remove the underline from the space. There's no automated ...
I would tweak a few things around (lower the parenthesis and dash a bit for old-style figures) but I think in general it looks fine. My main concern would be if you want to scale this style to other things than your resume later on...Bebas is caps only so I find that limiting and avoid using Bebas usually for that reason.
